Senegal and Japan drew 2-2 in the Yekaterinburg Arena on Sunday to leave World Cup Group H wide open.Sadio Mane put Senegal sbo888 ahead after an error from Japan keeper Eiji Kawashima on 11 minutes but Takashi Inui levelled before the break.Against the run of play Moussa Wague put Senegal ahead on 71 minutes but Japan fought back again and Keisuke Honda salvaged a point 12 minutes from time.Both teams now have four points from two games and have identical records atop the group. Japan face Poland in their final game on Thursday while Senegal meet Colombia.Senegal coach Aliou Cisse was less than pleased with his team's performance saying he believed they had failed to impose themselves physically on Japan.He said: "I didn't really see a physical difference between the two teams. We had trouble containing Yuya Osako throughout and we have to improve on that side."We need to improve in terms of aggression, rigour and concentration. We also have to keep the ball better. "We did those things against Poland and we need to get that back. I still hope to qualify because we have the quality necessary to face Colombia." Having seen his team come back twice Japan coach Akira Nishino was happier saying: "It's good point for us because Senegal is a very tough team. I hope this now gives us confidence to go on and win the third game." When Senegal's opener came there was a hint of good fortune about it but they deserved their break after starting so positively.MBaye Niang crossed from the right and Genki Haraguchi's clearance only went out as far as Youssouf Sabaly. His shot looked straightforward for Japan keeper Kawashima but he chose to punch instead of make the easy catch. The clearance hit the onrushing Mane and nestled in the back of the Japan net to conclude a catalogue of defensive errors.Japan kept their heads on 34 minutes their reward came.Gaku Shibasaki sprayed a 30-meter pass out to Yuto Nagatomo on the left wing and when he cut inside Inui took over. First he carried the ball to his left but then he dropped his shoulder and moved inside once more to curl a right-footed shot past Khadim Ndiaye in the Senegal goal. sbo888 Pape Alioune Ndiaye was the first to try his luck in the second period but Senegal were having more difficulty in finding their best player Mane. On the hour Japan should have taken the lead. Gaku Shibasaki crossed and Osako had the goal at his mercy from the edge of the six-yard box but he failed to make contact.Japan had their tails up now and Osako backheeled to Inui who, with the Senegal keeper spectating, curled his shot on to the bar.Japan were now playing all the football but they fell behind when Youssouf Sabaly managed to spin away from his marker down the left and cross to the back post where 19-year-old right-back Wague arrived at speed to fire past Kawashima.Japan responded with an immediate substitution. Shinji Kagawa was replaced by Honda and he made it 2-2 late on.Senegal keeper Khadim Ndiaye came for a cross and never got there, leaving Honda to finish into an empty net for the draw. sbo888
